FIRST WEEK:  

Thu Aug 16th:  In class - READ STUDENT HANDOUT & DISCUSS POLICIES and also cover Mrs. Ragle's Syllabus and Classroom Expectations. QUIZ FRIDAY.

Fri Aug 17th:  In class - FINISH READING STUDENT HANDBOOK sections.  SYLLABUS QUIZ/Scavenger Hunt.  * ADD to Google Classroom, Technology Survey (if time).

HOMEWORK FOR FIRST WEEK:       last updated Wed, Aug 15th at 2:22pm

* ADD TO GOOGLE CLASSROOM  (Please complete ASAP, by Tues Aug 21st at the latest.)  Codes will be provided on syllabus.

*  TECHNOLOGY SURVEY  (Please complete ASAP, by Tues at the latest.)

* CVI SURVEY RESULTS (Some of you took this last year... you may take it again with a new e-mail address or at least print out your results from last year and submit by Tues, Aug 21st at the latest to be displayed proudly by Back 2 School Night).


Welcome back to school!  

Note:  This blog will be constantly changing and updated throughout the weeks.  Please be patient and e-mail Mrs. Ragle directly if you have questions, concerns or notice a typo or glaring error.  Let's practice patience and grace with one another.  :)

STUDENTS:  You will need to get your own MATH NOTEBOOK to take notes, do classwork, homework and quizzes in this year.  No spiral bindings this year... please find a COMPOSITION BOOK that you like best (can be college ruled, wide ruled, graph paper, black, blue, pink, purple, etc...) and can be 80 pages, 100 pages, whatever increment you find/prefer.

This notebook will be used EXCLUSIVELY for your MATH CLASS, so do not plan on tearing out the pages.  You will be creating your own unique COVER SHEET for the front inside page the first days of school... Due by Friday, August 24th at the start of class.

I will provide students will a class set of compasses, rulers, scissors and glue sticks but these may be items that students might need to have access to at home this year to either finish incomplete classwork or homework at home.  Similarly, I will provide some colored pencils for students to have access to during class, but students may benefit from having their own form of coloring tools (suggest colored pencils since markers, sharpies, and highlighter options generally bleed through notebook pages).
